THE TURTLENECK SPECTRUM
Tread lightly, don’t try this at home, proceed with caution…turtlenecks may be back in style, but we’re not sure yet either.
I remember hating turtlenecks. Mitch Hedburg compared wearing a turtleneck to being constantly strangled by a really weak person – I agree, or at least I remember feeling like I agreed 20 years ago when my mom made me wear turtlenecks because I looked sooo handsome. However, lately they are popping up in many collections and I’ve got to admit that I’m pretty curious about allowing them back into my rotation. We’ve gathered images of some of the stronger arguments in the case for the reemergence of turtlenecks, a.k.a roll necks (in menswear slang). Designers include Nigel Cabourn, Ankar, Brioni, Duchamp and One Nine Zero Six. — Dustin Marucci
